Developmental psychopathology involves the study and prediction of maladaptive behaviors and processes across time. This new edition of the Handbook furthers the goal of integrating developmental processes into the search for adequate categorical systems for understanding child mental health problems and the trajectories that lead to adult psychopathology. The editors respond to contemporary challenges to place individual behavior in a biological and social context. By including a range of approaches, this volume encompasses the complexity of the growing developmental literature. At the same time, it includes the most recent efforts to produce concise child diagnostic categories.
In a thoroughgoing revision of the first edition of this classic text and reference, published by Plenum in 1990, the editors have assembled a distinguished roster of contributors to address such topics as issues and theories; context and mental health; biology and mental illness; disorders of early childhood; disruptive behavior disorders; emotional disorders; control disorders; pervasive developmental disorders; and trauma disorders. Clinicians, researchers, and students in such diverse fields as developmental and clinical psychology, child and adolescent psychiatry, social work, and educational and counseling psychology will benefit from the concepts, investigations, and challenges presented in this state-of-the-art compendium.

From reviews of the First Edition:
`The editors took on a challenging task in assembling a handbook of developmental psychopathology... [and] have chosen to portray [its] diversity and potential.... [A] useful sampling of [the field of] developmental psychopathology... [and] a valuable reference for a variety of professionals and investigators concerned with child and adolescent psychopathology.'
`For anyone concerned with child and adolescent psychopathology, there is a great deal of interest to be found in this excellent edited volume. The scope is broad with good coverage... [T]he chapters provide thoughtful and balanced reviews of both the current state of knowledge and some of the concepts and ideas that are likely to guide research and clinical practice over the next few years.... [T]he overall standard is high and the book can be recommended as an interesting set of highly informative essays on key issues...'
British Journal of Developmental Psychology
Prepublication praise for the Second Edition:
`This new edition coming ten years after the pioneering First Edition of the Handbook confirms how much growth has occurred in our understanding of the determinants of mental health in children. The inclusion of many new chapters on developmental issues will help both researchers and clinicians flesh out their understanding of both the ensuring progress and continuing issues in the field.'
Daniel Stern, Cornell University Medical School and University of Geneva
`This book achieves its aims in providing current insights into the relationship between development, biology, context, and protection against psychopathology. This conceptual framework provides a basis for characterizing the relationships between etiologic components of psychopathology. Handbook of Developmental Psychopathology, Second Edition is recommended as an essential volume in the personal libraries of all mental health clinicians and researchers.'
Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, 62:10 (2001)
